're the first lady of the united states, you have a bevy of dresses designed for you, and that is no different for ann romney, but that plays into the narrative, so that's why you see the focus on it. it's a down time in the economy, and it is an attempt, again, to suggest that the romneys are out of touch with middle class americans, which that will be up to the american people to decide, but i think that story plays into that narrative. >> i want to button this up with something else we see so prevalently in this day and age is digital media. the number of tweets that were rolling in per minute when it came to michelle obama. 28,000 tweets per minute while she was speaking. she's not even the candidate. look how it compared to the left. mitt romney's measurement was only 14,000 tweets per minute. but let's finish it this way by saying, as you said, she's not running. she may have an effect but she's not running. important to note that. >> and she's also the first lady of the united states, and she's been in a very prominent role for five years now, so let's -- you know, i think balance it by

here in the united states of america. >> the problem with saying that these are good jobs is the facts don't seem to support it. some of of the jobs were temporary and paid for by the stimulus or perhaps census work or that sort of thing. so they did not last. and some of the jobs are not worth the jobs that we lost. a variety of studies say we lost more middle to upper income jobs an gained more lower level jobs. the simple truth is that the numbers may be technically correct in some of the claims, but when you look at all of the details, there is an awful lot more that needs to be seen. this is tom foreman, charlotte. >>> the b.t. founder bob johnson was not a fn of president obama four years ago, so what has actually changed? we will talk to him live in a moment. on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ there's another way to help
hispanic governor of texas, some people suggesting the first hispanic president of the united states. do you like that kind of talk? can you handle that kind of pressure? >> no, i'd be lying if i said that's not flattering. of course it's flattering to anybody, but the biggest mistake that i could make or anybody could make in this situation is to believe the press. to believe the hype. >> reporter: castro was elected mayor in 2009, and then re-elected with 82% of the vote. now he's 37, the youngest mayor of a top 50 city in the united states. he's also used to the baby face jokes. one of the funnier things that has happened to you when you first met president obama, he jokingly asked if you were the intern. >> that's right. yeah. >> you being asked to do this speech, is that kind of making up for that jab? >> i don't know. i don't know. but i accept, you know, i always got the age jokes at different points in my career. >> is it still happening? >> every now and then. you know, i'm starting to get the gray hair that i need from my 3-year-old daughter and from politics. >> reporter: this
for the 3 million jobs that are actually vacant in the united states but that people can't get because they are not well trained. so a significant part of the way forward is training and retraining. we have also been in a bit of a stalemate. and the american people are going to decide whether we're going to go forward with president obama or backward. so i think that he's going to ask the american people to stick with him so that the initiatives that have been blocked by an obstructionist congress can actually be cleared. so that we can invest in roads and bridges, which we know if we invest in snificant infrastructure, we can create between 500,000 to 1 million new jobs. >> well, let's talk about -- >> hold on one second. wait a minute. you know that there has been no movement on a number of these programs. and i think there will be after the election. >> well, that's a question i want to ask you. we heard this rousing speech from bill clinton. he talked about how he was able to reach across the aisle and work with republicans on welfare reform, right? but it's sort of like reminding
introducing you to the president of the united states, that's a pretty remarkable message. >> that is. >> that speaks to the american dream and i will say, perhaps, his greatest asset is his little 3-year-old daughter was a super star on the cutaways and become an internet celebrity flipping her hair around. it was draets. >> we're just getting started live from the blackfinn salon in charlotte, north carolina. >> mika does that too. when she's at baseball games and they catch her behind home plate. >> remember when we embarrassed chris. absolutely funny. >> the mayor is going to be here. >> mayor julian castro will be here joining us and bring in white house senior adviser valerie jarrett here to join us. >> all right. >> yes. >> tom brokaw, arianna huffington. up next, jim vandehei with the top stories from the politico playbook. but first, let's send it up to bill karins in new york for a check on the forecast, bill? >> good morning to you, mika. it's a very humid morning for everyone in the eastern half of the country. there's some fog to deal with too. and definitely some rain, e
. >> absolutely. notwithstanding what any poll may say, the president of the united states is making this address thursday night we feel very confident that the stadium will be full. and so it's really more about the weather than it is about whether you're going to fill a stadium or not. he is the president, making one of the most important speeches given where we are right now at this time. no doubt that the stadium will be full. certainly you don't want people rained on. >> can i ask about the enthusiasm number. you're my numbers guy. so you're prepared for the whole morning. i'll throw it your way. >> what does that really mean? if you look at the enthusiasm numbers the number foreenthusiasm for mitt romney i think is 51% when they asked republicans and when i do anecdotal questioning, everybody seems to be like -- on this election overall. is it a measure of incumbent that people are less enthusiastic or overall? >> i think it's right that it is a measure of overall. this is not a history-making election in the way that 2008 was history-making election. you knew that there was going to be a n
not authorize the fast and furious operation that allowed 2000 weapons from the united states, mexico, and they were in the drug trafficking hands. i think that 200 mexicans might have died and also american agent brian terry. there is a report that 14 agents were responsible for the operation. shouldn't attorney general eric holder. he should have known about that and if he didn't, should you fire him? >> first of all, i think it's important for us to understand that the fast and furious program was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. when eric holder found out about it, he discontinued it. but i will will tell you that eric holder has my complete confidence because he has shown himself to be willing to hold accountable those who took these actions. >> so this notion that the idea that it started previous administration and as jake tapper points out in a piece this morning that no it didn't start under the actual gun walking did but not the fast and the fearous actual program. >> nine months into the obama administration. fast and furious is as a progra

you can raise a family on, good jobs right here in the united states of america. >> the problem with saying that these are good jobs is the facts just don't seem to support it. some of the jobs are temporary paid for by the stimulus or perhaps census work, that sort of thing, so they didn't really last. and some jobs weren't worth the jobs we lost. we lost middle and upper income jobs and we've gained more lower income jobs. while the numbers may be technically correct in some of these claims, when you look at all the details, there's an awful lot more that needs to be seen. this is tom foreman, charlotte. >>> prime time continues at 7:00 with wolf blitzer and anderson cooper. >>> embarrassed and concerned? that's what the commander of the navy s.e.a.l.s wrote to troops after release of the book "no easy day." the book wrote by former navy s.e.a.l. has classic information about the osama bin laden raid and s.e.a.l. training. the book is already a hit, outselling "50 shades of grey." the part of the controversy is the s.e.a.l. is even writing about his work. they're normally very
